What our customers say
Exceptional service from first enquiry to completion of the transaction. Geoff and Rob are very professional and a pleasure to deal with. Although they were taking a car from me – I would not hesitate to recommend them over and above dealing directly with a Porsche Franchised Dealer – hopefully one day I can go back and purchase a vehicle from them. First class!
I had been looking for a long time for the perfect Cayman S and found the one at Harbour cars, I phoned and spoke to Sam who was very professional and knowledgeable about the car, I then arranged a flight from Newcastle to Southampton to view, test drive and purchase the vehicle this is how confident I was after speaking with Sam. The service I received was outstanding and the car was as described. I would genuinely like to thank Sam and Harbour cars for a great buying experience that got me the perfect car, if your in the market for a top class sports car then this is the place to go
Harbour cars recently purchased my Porsche Macan S. Great service all the way through the process and a firm you can really trust. Sam and the rest of the team were very professional and would definitely sell to them in the future.
Excellent! Just Excellent. My first experience of buying a performance car and every effort was made to ensure I was comfortable and happy throughout the process. From the initial phone call, to the video tour of the car and the sales process itself, I was thoroughly looked after. These guys go the extra mile! My car is awesome ! Thank you so much!
Absolutley superb service and high quality cars. Geoff was very honest, not pushy and a pleasure to deal with. This is my first Porsche and I wanted the security of buying from a specialist, and I wasn’t disappointed. Businesses like this are few and far between and owning my own family run busniness, I appreciated they way my purchase was dealt with
What can I say, I don’t often give reviews and when I do I very rarely give 5 stars but these guys deserve it. Right from the start Sam has been a true professional, the 996 was prepared to a very high standard and I would even go as far as to say it was perfect which makes negotiating difficult! I genuinely believe they are all Porsche enthusiasts and looking at the cars in the showroom they only source the best available, the buying experience and the 996 have both been first class. Highly recommended
Second time dealing with Harbour Cars and second time of being very happy! Geoff was simply amazing from start to finish and answered all my queries perfectly and professionally. They have supplied me with my dream car twice and I am sure there will be a third and fourth time!
I bought a 997 2S about 6 months ago. Very easy process from start to finish and the guys at Harbour Cars made me feel very welcome. The car was great and in excellent condition. A few weeks ago I had an issue with the ventilation fan in the car and I ran it down to them and it was all fixed in a couple of hours. A new fan motor was fitted, all covered under the warranty. Again this was really easy and all done when convenient to me. Sam and Geoff are both available on the phone to answer any questions. When I look for the next one, this is the place I will start
Picked up a Cayman S a few weeks ago and was really impressed by the fantastic service of Harbour Cars. Having dealt with many other dealerships in the search for the car, I can attest that Harbour Cars are of the highest standard. Every step of the purchase was incredibly professional and the after service care is phenomenal. Their cars are of a incredibly high standard, I will definitely be going back if I’m lucky enough to afford another Porsche
Bought a Porsche C4S from them car was as they said it would be lovely, first class services and great people to deal with I’ve had some expensive cars in my time from new to used but this is the best service I’ve come across.
Our recent purchase of a Golf GTI was a great pleasure at Harbour Cars.
This is a well organised and experienced company selling cars of excellent quality.
Chris was so helpful from our first enquiry through to collection of our car, at no time were we made to feel under pressure to buy.
Kev’s preparation of the cars can only be described as exceptional.
The aftercare received to date also lives up to the standards of our ‘buying experience’.
We have no hesitation in making this review and we would highly recommend Harbour Cars and the team.
Sam provided an excellent service assisting with my search for a Cayman S. Very knowledgeable about the product and the various options available and the top quality cars presented to a very high standard at Harbour Cars. Would not hesitate strongly recommending this specialist.
We were looking to sell our car as no longer needed so contacted Harbour Cars via email. Sam called us to run through the spec and came back later with a fair offer for the Porsche Macan, which we accepted
Rob travelled 3 hours to see us and appraise the car. He was thorough, very personable and knowledgeable, clearly having a high standard of cars he buys. Suffice to say we did the deal and he drove the car away and sold it very quickly.
When looking for another car I will definitely be keeping an eye on Harbour Cars stock and would not hesitate buying a car from them now I know the high standard they expect.
Thank you for a seamless transaction.
Without a doubt the best garage I have ever dealt with, a superb service from start to finish.
For the first time, after some 53 years and twenty-odd cars, I actually bought a car without seeing it in the flesh. It was quite a long way away but the car itself, a Porsche Boxster S, certainly looked nice from the photos and description, and after a few calls back & forth with Sam & his colleague Geoff they gave me the confidence to trust Harbour Cars so I took the plunge, part-exchanging my Boxster.
Come collection day, I was still pretty nervous, but on meeting the guys and seeing the car itself I was more than delighted. Everything was as described, and a nicer bunch you couldn’t wish to deal with; what is usually a rather fraught experience was transformed into a very happy one.
Many thanks to Sam, his colleague Geoff, and everyone at Harbour Cars – you fully deserve your excellent reputation.
I had my car for sale and i got a call from Harbour Cars, they wanted to purchase the vehicle. We basically agreed a very reasonable price over the phone, and i was assured that as long as the car was in the condition I had described, they would pay that price. Everything went very smoothly and they were really friendly and helpful. Probably one of the best-selling experiences I have had. They were honest about how much they would market the vehicle for too. I would definitely sell to them again. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Even afterwards i needed a copy of the warranty I had on the vehicle, and they sent it straight away.

This is the first review I have ever done but would like to take this opportunity to thank Geoff, Kevin and Chris at Harbour Cars for their time, patience and professionalism when selling us an excellent, highly spec’d, low mileage, 981 Cayman S.
I am an extremely hard person to please and very fussy and cannot fault their complete service and nothing was too much trouble.
I have no hesitation in recommending Harbour Cars and indeed have already done so.
Had the pleasure of buying a beautiful Porsche Cayman from Harbour Cars last week. The service was impeccable, no hard sell, excellent attention to detail. Upon collection the preparation of the car was fantastic, plenty of time given to familiarise myself with the car and completion of all paperwork. Chris and the team were a pleasure to deal with – thank you
I spoke to Chris several times over the phone before travelling from the Midlands to view the car. Nothing was too much trouble for Chris. He answered all my questions accurately and honestly.
When I arrived I was impressed with the presentation of all the cars. The attention to detail was amazing.
I agreed to purchase the car and asked to get it delivered by a covered low loader. Chris arranged all this seamlessly. Nothing was too much trouble. Chris agreed to the car being serviced in advance, as it was due a big service imminently and put a brand new MOT on the car all prior to delivery.
Special thanks to Kev, the valleter, who really knows how to treat a car. Kev clearly has a passion.
Overall a great experience and would go back.
Thanks all, see you all soon!
I dealt with Chris Vincent re the purchase of my Porsche 911 C2S. The overall experience and attention to detail from Chris was impeccable from start to car collection.
I would certainly recommend Harbour Cars to anyone looking for a quality Porsche.

Bought a Porsche 997 Gen2 4s from Harbour Cars and have not been disappointed. I researched the purchase for months in advance pin-pointing the best car to buy, the optimum price and best warrantee package. Harbour Cars were without question, the best dealership by far on all fronts compared to others I looked at in the market place within 100 miles of home. (SW London).
Gary was exceptionally helpful, honest and professional in approach. Notably the handover was similar to those I have previously experienced when buying a new car.
The car is excellent, nothing about the purchase has been a let-down. I highly recommend Harbour Cars to you.
From initial telephone call through to driving the car off the forecourt, Harbour Car’s team professionalism, honesty and customer service, particularly communication, were impressive.
They were very flexible and I recommend them to all. Great car and service!
After looking for my new car (Merc SLK55 AMG) for months on the internet, I found the one I liked the look of at Harbour Cars but it was 96 miles away from home. I was concerned that it was a long way to drive if the pictures and the write up were exaggerated (as has often been the case with other dealers), so I rang Harbour Cars and spoke to Chris who spent a lot of time going through all the questions that I had and putting my mind at rest that this car was perfect. I arranged to view the car that weekend and I wasn’t disappointed!
The car was everything and more that Chris had described to me on the phone and after a test drive I bought the car. I had thought of a few questions whilst on the test drive that I wanted to ask Chris when we returned to the showroom, but I was so blown away with the car, I forgot! When I got home I rang Chris and asked the additional questions, one of which was that I thought the arm rest lid seemed loose in the centre of the car when I lifted it up to check the storage. Chris admitted that he hadn’t lifted the lid up so went to have a look there and then and confirmed that it was loose (one of the brackets was cracked) and he would have it replaced FOC (which he did).
Chris and the staff in the showroom were all really friendly and normal, not like your usual car salesman! We were offered tea and coffee and I noticed a sign that said not to be offended if no-one came over to you right away, they want you to look around in peace, which is a welcome novelty in car showrooms!
All the cars at Harbour Cars looked as immaculate as the one I bought and during a conversation with Chris, he told me how difficult it is to source really good cars. This told me how much effort he puts into ensuring the cars are of the highest standard.
I have been in the motor trade myself for 33 years and it is very rare to come across a dealer with this level of honesty, service and with such fantastic cars.
All the cars at Harbour Cars are valeted to such a high standard that if they didn’t have number plates on, you would think they were all brand new. Every car is treated with Williams ceramic coat which protects the paintwork, comes with a 12 month bumper to bumper warranty which includes breakdowns! and the after care is out of this world. We bought the car on Saturday and Chris rang on Monday to ensure that we were happy with the car and said that he would be keeping in touch to ensure all is going well with the car.
I would highly recommend Harbour Cars to anyone and don’t worry about how many miles you are away from them, your journey will be worth it, and I will definitely be going back when I want another car, without wasting my time looking on the internet first.
The staff were amazing, from the first time we met, until I took delivery of the car. The aftersales service is exemplary, even to the extent of a member of staff visiting my home on a Sunday, to drop the breakdown policy off with me. Harbour cars will have my business without fail in the future.
I had been looking for a SL350 for a couple of months when I came across Harbour Cars. Although it was farther than I really wanted to travel I enquired about the car, and was quickly contacted by Chris who talked me through the car and its history. As a result of this conversation, and after reading the testimonials on the website, I decided to purchase the car unseen with the proviso that I would be refunded if the car didn’t meet my expectations. The car was exactly as described, and had been prepared to a very high standard. The fact that they include a very comprehensive warranty with all of their cars was a major factor in my decision to purchase from them. Chris was a great guy to deal with, and carefully showed me around the car explaining the various functions. Having left the showroom we had only travelled a few miles when an alarm appeared on the dash. I contacted Chris who immediately set off to help. It turned out to be a very minor problem, and we were soon on our way. I would recommend Harbour Cars to any prospective purchaser, and I fully intend to purchase my next car from them.
I have driven past Harbour Cars for many years and always checked out the nice cars they had in stock from the road. When we in the position to replace one of our cars we started to search for 911/ Cayman S. After a while doing our homework working out what we wanted and what options my wife insisted on, we visited a main Porsche dealer who really did not seem that attentive. We finally see a car on the internet at Harbour Cars, we took a trip down to see the car on a Saturday and was very impressed that all the cars were of a very high calibre and were spotless. We left then put a deposit down over the phone on the Monday and picked up a 911(991) 5 days later on the Friday. The service from Chris was great, he had a wealth of knowledge about Porsche’s and took the time to take us through all the details of the car and paperwork. We have now had the car about a month and Chris has phoned more than once to follow up if there are any questions or issues which is a nice touch. Thanks Harbour Cars.
I recently bought a Boxster S from Harbour Cars and am so happy that I purchased from them. The attention to detail and customer service is second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Oliver, the sales person who handled my purchase, was very professional and even made himself available on a Sunday for me to pick the car up, as I am not a local, which was a lovely touch.
In the future, if I decide to change my car, I will definitely use Harbour cars again.

We purchased a 2012 Porsche Boxster S from Harbour cars in May 2017 a great car that had been very well prepared.
Harbour cars give a great professional service that I could not fault. The salesman was very knowledgeable, new his Porsches inside out and offered us a decent trade in deal.
We did have a minor problem with the alarm on the car but this was fixed in a couple of days and a thorough and honest explanation of the problem was given, they also gave us a courtesy car while it was being fixed. I would have no hesitation in buying another car from Harbour cars or recommending them to a friend.
Harbour Cars are the most straightforward and honest company I have dealt with in buying/selling vehicles over the last 30+ years. Their fair pricing, specialist product knowledge, preparation standards, and enthusiasm for what they do are all apparent and result in a far more pleasant and professional experience compared with that from main dealers. I have yet to sample their after sales service, but expect this will be to an equally high level.
I’ve had various experiences of ‘service’ – from main dealers and a range of independents when buying cars – but Harbour Cars are by far the best I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with to date. Having just bought a car with Gary’s help, if you are at all interested in the type of vehicles they stock, I’d recommend you contact them for a chat or by email – better still pop in to their showroom to see for yourself. Gary is a good listener. Starting from my initial phone call, he didn’t judge me on my current car or my initial ‘must haves’ for the new one – but took time to listen and also talked me through some ownership issues. Using his knowledge and experience of the marque – the various models, options and combinations available – Gary helped me re-think my original wish-list for a 911 into one that would actually deliver what I really wanted. Even better, Gary then sourced the ideal car – and made sure it was professionally prepared to their own good-as-new standards – properly inspected, fully serviced, detailed, documented and warrantied. The comprehensive Harbour Cars package was fundamental to me – as finally owning a 911 is a lifetime’s dream – trusting the people you buy it from to back up that initial sale with continued good service is vital. If you’re lucky enough to be looking on the Harbour Cars website, contemplating the car of your dreams – I’d recommend you make that call. Exceptional service so far.
